Gregory Carosi: Axis
Greg Carosi seeks to explore the spaces between figuration and abstraction, through the lens of the Riverina which, since his relocation from Sydney to regional NSW in 2015, continues to shape the quality and character of his work. The exhibition will examine the idea of line and the relationship between geographic differences between its pictorial space and its thematic power, informed by Greg’s growing awareness of the geographic difference between our perceptions of line in Australia.
Working from the perspective that all abstraction is landscape, Greg seeks to challenge the idea of line as horizon, exploring instead the notion that, especially in inland areas, line is more accurately thought of as incision. In this regard, the paintings also engage with the formalism of Indigenous art, which circumvents line as horizon in its abstracted depictions of inland regions from a topographical perspective.
